I'm currently running a SRT front mount intercooler and i have it setup like every normal joe but here's the kicker. Can you run the piping from the trim to the intercooler and run the outlit on the turbo housing to the intake manifold. and run piping with a air filter could that work? on the other opening of the intercooler?

I'm running a stock housing turbo with t3/t4 fin's it spools pretty good i'm boosting about 10 pounds any suggestion's?

Need pictures, kind of dont understand what you mean. If you are thinking about doing what I am thinking you are thinking about doing, dont think about it because it wont work.

Microsoft paint is your friend.

I have never seen anything setup like that before. I dont see how that could work. I would love to see the real pictures of the car it was done on. I can share one of my favorite civic turbo kits as well.

I bought this front mount acouple weeks ago and wanted to put it on but i did the "piping" myself and didn't have the money to pay for piping alone but 7 hours it was thrown together on my 90 Laser.

I just have a rebuilt stock housed turbo and not sure if i have to go bigger injector's fuel pump i know but it sputter's not sure why but i can take picture's and show you it's a pain in the ass the piping is gunna be redone i want no harsh comments tho lol

I was hoping people would notice all the wrong things on the civic :/

My guess is your charge pipe is not sealed so your maf is not getting proper air readings.

The setup you posted will do absolutely nothing for cooling the intake charge. Nothing.

Dear Riot2k,

Please research how internal combustion engines work.

Then research how turbochargers work.

Everyone cites maximum boost by corky bell as a good book to read, I've never read it, but I think it would help you. Please, for the love of Britney Spears children dont post again in anywhere but the noob section until you read that book and 12 others(nonfiction) concerning some form of internal combustion thermodynamics.
I will hunt you down.;)

Don't do that. It sounds nice, but it makes absolutely no sense. Where is the piping from your intake manifold going????? It seems to be attached to some magical tube from the turbo???? Just do it right, it'll save you the trouble of realizing all the sorts of fail in this thread. :)

OP. Do it right or dont do it at all. If you cant afford to do it right, then dont mod the car or sell it and buy something without forced induction.
